The next crossover exchange for 2017 came on the eve of the Northern Hemisphere's summer; wherein our characters got together to hang out at the beach, go for a picnic, have an epic road trip or just have fun in the sun! The fancy algorithm randomly assigning comic to comic handed me Neil Kapit's dystopian sci-fi / superhero saga
We are the Wyrecats
- given the rather dark subject matter inherent in the strip, relative to the cute-n-cartoony-ness of Cosmos, I was initially nonplussed as to how to proceed. However, as I reviewed Wyrecats, I noticed that the strip was divided into a dystopian 'present day' phase, and flashbacks to a more naive, optimistic 'backstory' phase; which was (somewhat) like a Saturday morning cartoon in comparison. Keeping that in mind, I decided to have the b-team Cosmos cast (Peter, Timmy, Jaime and Wendell) lead the story - having a day at the beach - with the Wyrecats team represented via the medium of action figures, which Peter and co. have brought along with them to act out imaginary adventures! And since kids are famous for doing impromptu mash-ups with different toys in their collections (regardless of what series they come from), who better to team up with the Wyrecats than Cosmos' home-grown Saturday Morning superhero, Captain Confusion? In essence, this crossover is basically a story within: Peter and Timmy provide a framing sequence and set the scene, while making their own story up (the crossover proper) about Captain Confusion teaming up with the Wyrecats at Sandfortress-Alpha....
